How Medical Xpress Can Help You Find Your Next Lift Chair

by Medical XPress

For many individuals with mobility issues, the simple act of standing from a seated position can be quite difficult. You may require a hand from a nearby person, or use a cane to help push yourself to your feet. But when you’re home alone, if you don’t have a cane or other item nearby to help you up, what do you do? Many people use lift chairs, which can ensure a person’s comfort while sitting, as well as their safety when trying to stand again. Here’s how Medical Xpress can help you find the right lift chair to suit your needs.

What Is a Lift Chair?

First off, if you’re not familiar with what a lift chair does, here’s a bit more information for you: A lift chair looks like your average, comfortable recliner. However, they are designed to attain a near-vertical position, using the power of an electric motor, to make it easier for the user to sit or stand without assistance.

So, if a user needs a little extra help sitting down gently, the chair can be put in the upright position. The user steps back against the seat, and the chair slowly lowers them to a seated position. When the user is ready to stand up again, they can simply press a button, and the lift chair will gradually rise to the upright position again, allowing them to easily get their feet back underneath them.

Our Knowledgeable Staff

The above should give you a basic understanding of lift chairs. However, there are many models, which attain different levels of recline and may have different additional features—such as heat, massage, position presets, and so on. Our knowledgeable staff members are the first tool you can utilize to find the right model and the right features for you.

One of our team members will take the time to listen to your exact needs and desires, then make suggestions regarding what type of lift chair they believe will give you what you need. They can even help you to find the right style and upholstery to suit your home’s interior décor. Just ask for help finding a lift chair at any Medical Xpress location, and we’ll do all we can to assist you.

Being able to try out these chairs in person will make it that much easier for you to find what you love.
